about

Dipping back into one of our favorite styles, NBT offers a ska-flavored look at the world of disposable fame via Internet and reality TV.

Our dream is that the song becomes hugely famous for 15 minutes, then disappears. Wow, that would be so meta, man.

lyrics

When the baby gave you the finger
And then she said "bite me mama"
You thought it was so hysterical
You uploaded a little video

Overnight you realized thousands watched it play
You got excited, everybody knew your name
And then it all went away


Your fame and fortune vanished in a flash
In the land of blind luck you were the one-eyed king
Those fifteen minutes, they fly by so fast
'Cause there's always gonna be another next big thing

So we watch you on the television
And wonder what the hell we're doing
It's the world's most boring spectacle
A drama really not worth viewing

Eventually we'll realize that it's all hot air
Conspicuous, ridiculous, and you're still nowhere
And suddenly no one cares


It's the law of supply and demand
Something that we can all understand
We're all suspects
We've got defects
We're all guilty of being train wrecks, and
When we're famous for just getting famous
It's just another flash in the pan

about

drunkdude69 Cleveland, Ohio

DD69 music has been described as “a rip through a well-stocked jukebox, with smooth funk that would have been at home on a turntable three decades ago mixing with a contemporary guitar-heavy party vibe that could have been recorded two weeks ago.”

The music has drawn comparisons to classic artists like Stevie Wonder and Frank Zappa, as well as contemporary bands like Sublime and 311.
